Common Water Heater Problems
One of the best-kept secrets among plumbers is that a skilled plumber can fix most water heater issues. Many contractors would rather sell you a new unit than invest the time in troubleshooting the problem with your current water heater. However, at Turbo Plumbing we know that new water heaters can be expensive and are not always in the budget for our customers. In addition, we are not willing to promote the wastefulness and environmental harm that comes from replacing a customer’s water heater when it is not at the end of its life.
When a water heater is not heating water, the most common reasons for the issue are a broken or worn-out heating element or thermostat. Each of these parts can be replaced very quickly and for much less than the cost of a new water heater. If you have noticed that the temperature of your hot water is no longer consistent, that is a sign that one of these two components is wearing out and will fail soon. A proactive call to (818) 740-6830 to schedule a water heater repair service can help you avoid a cold shower shortly.
Water leaks are another somewhat common issue with water heaters. When the leak is in the water heater piping or at the drain valve on the unit, a repair is a fast and affordable solution. The only costly leak is when the water is coming directly out of the tank. This is the result of corrosion through the wall of the holding tank, and it cannot be repaired safely. A new water heater is the only option.
Less common but still concerning issues are those that cause your hot water to be discolored or foul-smelling. This is often due to contamination in the tank. It could be rust, corrosion, dirt, or sand that is creating the issue when the tank is not being adequately maintained. A tank cleaning can remedy the problem if the contamination is dirt. However, if the issue is due to corrosion, the anode might need to be replaced before the tank is cleaned. In almost every case, an affordable repair or maintenance to the tank can solve the problem.
Types of Water Heaters
At Turbo Plumbing we are a full-service contractor and are qualified to work on all brands and models of water heaters. The most common units that we service are the standard tank-style water heaters. These units have a holding tank where the water is heated and then stored until there is a need for hot water. These traditional water heaters can be operated by gas or electricity, and the function is very similar.
Less common are the tankless water heaters, which only heat water when you turn on a faucet or shower. As the name implies, there is no tank on these units. Instead, the water is heated as it runs through the pipes to your fixture or appliance demanding hot water. Again, these units can be powered by either gas or electricity.
